Arunachal Pradesh. Land of rising sun.

It's an awesome place to spend for at least 9 to 10 days . It's none other than Arunachal Pradesh . . Extreme north eastern state. From Guwahati to bomdila by car it took 8 to 9 hrs journey and to make a lay over in bomdila for night. If from Guwahati one started by morning 6 am. By 3 to 4 pm reached in bomdila. Evening spend at bomdila by visiting sight seen like monastery and market. Next morning after tea must have to start for Tawang by 6 am. Which is the main destination  for travellers. It took around 9 to 10 hrs. Journey. After reaching Tawang take a rest overnight. On the way from bomdila to Tawang major sight seeing is sela pass and noora lake. Where temperature is very low. Some time snow falls is too much. It is situated an altitude of 12000 ft.   Another sight seeing is jang waterfalls on the way you can see. After this stunning journey one must have to take rest in Tawang hotel. Next day one have to get ready by 7 am for visit bumla pass  (indo-china border ). It is situated in an altitude of 16200 ft. But one have to make permit to visit bumla. Which is made by hotel authority. Bumla pass is a beautiful stunning place to visit. While returning visit sangaster (madhuri)lake. By 4 pm one can return to Tawang and spend the evening to visit Tawang monastery which is 400 years old. And of course Tawang market. Next morning one can start their journey after breakfast around 8. 30 am and return to dirang. Another small town. And stayed over there. Dirang is famous for its kiwi orchard. Apart from it many other fruits like apples, oranges, Malta etc. Orchard are there. Dirang monastery is one of the most beautiful place to visit as well as if you can stay there. They have accommodation for tourists. Next morning one can start journey for bhalukpong by 7 am. It tooks 7 to 8 hrs. Bhalukpong is a small town in the border of assam and arunachal pradesh. It is the entry point also to enter Arunachal Pradesh. Stay at bhalukpong over night. Visit bhalukpong sight seeing in the evening. Next morning by 8 am start journey for Guwahati. It took 6 to 7 hrs. Before the tour of Arunachal Pradesh one have to make ILP (Inner Line Permit )from Arunachal Bhawan  salt Lake. Kolkata. Without ILP no one will be able to get enter in Arunachal Pradesh. Each and every check post will be ask for it. Food are a bit costly due to high altitude. Hotels are also very good and available but better to book hotels and car  from Kolkata earlier. Best time to visit from September to November and March to may.

See the places of Arunachal Pradesh, Bhalukpong, Bomdilla, Dirang & Tawang

Visiting Arunchal Pradesh is a very pleasure trip. The country of Rising Sun. Beautiful Springs, Green surfaces, Himalayan beauty and 14000ft motorable road cross Cella Pass. From Tawang the Chinese border is only 30 K. M. Tawang Monastary is 2nd largest monastery after Tibet. Dalai Lama has come from Tibet to this Monastary first when he landed in India. Tawang is the place where Chinese force defeat Indian force in 1962. There is also a monument to remember us the great sacrifice of Indian army . Arunachal Pradesh has no of tourist circuit which will take a long time to reach all the places so it is advisable to select one or two circuit at a time My selection was Bhalukpong, Bomdilla, Dirang and Tawang. We took halt in every point because the road is very tough and physically you are unable to complete the tour not below six days if you want to enjoy of the above said spots. All spot has his own beauty. We took a very good toyota car and travelled the entire strech. We are 3 family person. We enjoyed a lot and a lifetime memory to see the beauty of Eastern Himalayan strech. Hornbill is the beauty of Himalaya in that region To visit the Arunachal Pradesh you need an inner line permit. If you go to their website you will get the information and guide line. Tour operators are also arranging for their clients Take car from Guawahati and make a contract for your entire trip or otherwise select a Traveller of repute who has the infrastructure to give you a pleasant journey Selection of Hotel is also an art. If you have that expertise select from net otherwise visit the place through conducted tour by a good operator Enjoy your travel safely and harmlessly to enjoy the beauty of Himalay.

Arunachal Pradesh Overview

Arunachal Pradesh is India's easternmost state and lives up to its name (Arun = dawn, Achal = land) by being the first to meet the rising sun in the country. It borders China on the north, Myanmar on the east and Bhutan on the west. Set in the Eastern Himalayas, the state is covered by hill elevations ranging from 50m to 7000m, the whole cut across by a number of rivers and their valleys. The five major rivers are Kameng, Subansiri, Siang, Lohit and Tirap. There are 61,000 sq km of forests of pine, oak, maple, fir and rhododendron in order to protect which the timber industry has now been banned in the state.  65% of the Arunachali's belong to tribes, mostly of either Tibetan or Thai-Burmese stock with diverse cultures and languages. Some important tribes are the Adi, Nishi, Monpa and Apatani. There are almost equal numbers of aninimists and Hindus, followed by Buddhists and Christians. They practise shifting cultivation, grow crops and fruits, and make bamboo and cane handicrafts. Border security considerations restricted entry into Arunachal till recently. The state offers less by way of infrastructure but more in terms of unspoilt areas. Arunachal can best be understood as a western, a central, and an eastern belt. Westernmost Arunachal can be seen as the Bomdila-Tawang circuit (accessible from Tezpur in Assam) covering the 13,700-feet high Sela Pass and Sela Lake. Tawang monastery has been, for almost 400 years, a center of the socio-religious life of the Monpa people and a fortress-like protector of the resident monks. It contains priceless paintings and ancient manuscripts. Towards central Arunachal, capital Itanagar is the base of the Nishi tribe and is a good point to access picturesque Ziro, home of the Apatani tribe and another scenic location, Pasighat. On the extreme east is the Tezu-Namdapha circuit (accessible from Dibrugarh in Assam). At 2000 sq km, the Namdapha National Park covers valley heights of 200m and snowy peaks of 4500m. It is the only natural habitat to hold the four big cats: Tiger, Leopard, Snow Leopard and Clouded Leopard.
